Woza Moya is a non-governmental organisation providing care and support for people living with HIV in the Ufafa Valley, South Africa. Woza Moya are a small-scale, emerging producer group and while they are not currently Fair Trade certified, they are taking their first steps towards accreditation. Oxfam is working to bring Woza Moya’s beautiful hand-crafted products to the Australian market in the hopes that the relationship will result in long-term, positive improvements in the organisations operations - while linking the group to new markets, assisting with quality, export and product development procedures and to provide guidance towards Fair Trade accreditation.
The first products from Woza Moya to grace our Australian shelves are the ever-colourful, bright and quirky sock monkeys. Operation Sock Monkey was a project originally developed in Canada to help bring joy and laughter to children affected by trauma all around the world. Due to the sock monkeys ever-growing popularity and increasing demand, the project is now also helping Woza Moya’s artisans in South Africa create a sustainable future with an ongoing source of income. In addition to export activities, a portion of Woza Moya’s proceeds go towards supplementing the income of other artisans in the Ufafa Valley, and the group also supplies sock monkeys to the "Clowns Without Borders South Africa" program which works with local children affected by trauma.
